The iPod Nano may not be the only 4 GB flash player for long. Building on their previous experience, they are introducing the m200 player, which tops out at 4 GB of storage, for a competitive $199. So much for everyone claiming they can’t compete with Apple’s sweet deal with Samsung on flash memory.
“It is SanDisk’s guiding principle to always provide superior value to its customers,” said Eric Bone, director of retail product marketing at SanDisk. “One of the ways we have done this with the Sansa m200 line is to feature support for music subscription services and capacities that include a 4-gigabyte (GB) model for $199.99, made possible with our new 70-nanometer NAND/MLC 8-gigabit chip. When you combine these key features with a compact yet robust industrial design and an easy-to-use interface, we believe the Sansa m200 line will be very compelling for anyone who appreciates music.”
